none of my jacks fit under it either BUT ya gotta know the tricks of the trade my friend. next time drive the truck up onto a 2x4 and with a 4"+ drop my jack can fit under the skid plate with ease..

other than that, it doesnt seem to matter how low profile the jack is because the handle hits the valance or roll pan before you can jack it up..

i actually did a search last night for low profile floor jacks and was able to find one with a long reach and it is only 3 1/2 inches high. which from my calcuations will just pass under my frame. i want to double check on the weight of the jack cause i did see alot that were like 2 3/4 inches but weighed over 100lbs. thanks for the help guys

i need the jack to be no higher than 3 1/2 inches at the saddle. if the 1st gen's are as low as that then i'll go find one at a junk yard. but i'd really rather to have a jack
